Aerospace Industry Realities

The complex and varied nature of aerospace assemblies means that an ineffective measurement process will slow production time and compromise accuracy. Given the critical nature of aerospace manufacturing, less-than-perfect performance simply isn’t an option. The norm is 100 percent inspection and electronic data collection, and metrology solutions must be able to keep pace.

complex components

Complex Components

In aerospace applications, the requirements for accurate assemblies are strict. Every element in an engine or turbine must meet precise tolerances to ensure reliability. This goes beyond dimensional measurement—proper hardness, contour and surface roughness must be verified as well.

time and cost restrictions

Time and Cost Restrictions

As regulatory requirements become stricter and production cycles become shorter, the aerospace industry must find ways to validate designs ahead of final assembly. Engineers rely on metrology techniques such as 3D modeling or with CAD comparison to prevent expensive rework and speed final production without compromising accuracy.
